Abstract:

Correlation studies indicated that ear height, ear length, ear girth, Number of kernel rows per ear, Number of kernels per row, 100 kernel weight, Shelling percentage, Crude protein content, tryptophan and lysine contents exhibited significantly positive correlations with grain yield. Path coefficient analysis indicated that ASI, KPR Crude Protein, 100 kernel weight exerted at the highest positive direct effects both at genotypic    and phenotypic levels and hence these traits play an important role in generating the high yielding genotypes through breeding programmes.
